When we think of the technological advances of the past 20 years, one in particular will probably come to mind for most Americans: wireless technology, which now enables us to access the Internet from anywhere. But when most Americans think of the top uses for the wireless Internet, health care is probably not the first thing on that list. Perhaps, in the near future, it will be. The current revolution in medicine will use the full potential of technology to transform medical practice to save lives and improve health.

Some of the most prominent members of Morgan State University's Board of Regents have routinely missed meetings since at least 2000, a pattern of absenteeism that critics say robs the Baltimore school of key oversight at a time when it is under criminal investigation by the Maryland attorney general for its fiscal practices. Board members U.S. Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, former congressman Kweisi Mfume and prominent science education advocate Shirley M. Malcom have missed dozens of meetings in recent years, according to minutes from the board meetings that The Sun obtained through a public information request.

For most of the authors sitting pensively in the stalls of the Baltimore Book Festival, attracting passers-by to their titles was hard work. But not for Clifford the Big Red Dog, star of the children's book series of the same name. While strutting around Mount Vernon Square near sundown yesterday, Clifford suddenly came face to face with a sugar-fueled fan named Rhavyn Vines. Thrilled to be celebrating her sixth birthday, Rhavyn - her tongue painted blue from Italian water ice - charged and clamped her excited arms around his big red right leg. "CLIFFORD!"

Baltimore City Council President Sheila Dixon, who will become the city's first female mayor if Martin O'Malley is elected governor next month, has quietly been making a series of changes to staff and style in recent weeks to prepare for the transition of power - just in case. Unable to sit on the sidelines of this year's gubernatorial election between O'Malley and Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., Dixon is shaking up her management team, intensifying her public schedule and becoming more vocal on a number of key issues, from low-income housing to a proposed citywide ban on smoking.

At the risk of sounding egocentric, I feel like I'm at the city's epicenter of Tuesday's Democratic primary. My house just west of Wyman Park puts me not only at the edge of the 40th legislative district, the most hotly contested of Baltimore's six General Assembly districts. It also puts me in a corner of the convoluted 3rd Congressional District, the most competitive of the three U.S. House of Representative districts that include parts of the city -- and, indeed, of the eight in the state.
